This episode sees Mark Anderson and The Odd Man Out joining Hesher and Spore to break down the newly released admission from a woman who served on the Whitey Bulger jury who's now saying she was pen-pal friends with Whitey and that he told her he was involved in the MKultra experiments as a test subject who'd unknowingly been given LSD. The former juror says she would not have voted to convict if she'd know that he was the subject of mind control programs. What does this mean for our justice system, for the 'serial killer phenom', for the legitimacy of classic mafia narratives? Should the public consider the possibility that the MKultra program or some derivative of it exists to this day and could it have anything to do with the serial killer phenomena or with the daily shooter phenomena that have replaced the serial killers of the 70s and 80s? Are we even allowed to ask these questions? Lets find out, on this rather edgy edition of BOILER ROOM. Oh and just for good measure, lets opine about why Stephen Spielberg's daughter is doing porn, why CA governor is suspending physical fitness testing in schools and what the dangers might be of rental cars that are run by apps. Enjoy the show!
